A word from Sushi Lounge
Sushi Lounge isn’t your typical Japanese restaurant: Cool atmosphere and a live DJ make it the place to see and be seen in Hoboken. Sushi Chef Tony Leung, formerly of Tao in New York City, uses the highest quality ingredients in his creations. The sushi and sashimi have been rated best in town four years straight by Hoboken.com, and the custom rolls have garnered great reviews from the press and customers alike. A fully-stocked bar included Japanese specialties such as plum wine and an award winning sake list, as well as an extensive martini menu that is available at 1/2 price on Tuesdays. The DJ spins tunes every evening, and on "Sake Bomb Sunday," live bands enhance the restaurant’s upbeat vibe. It’s no surprise that Sushi Lounge was not only the sole New Jersey restaurant to be listed on Citysearch’s 2004/2005 New York "Best of" list, but it was also named among the top five sushi restaurants in New York City. ****** Please note:turn time on parties of two is maximum of 90.

    Even though we were a little late to our reservation, they were able to seat us right away. Wasn't too busy the time we went on Saturday night. My friends and I ordered some pad thai and various rolls which were all great! Service was good and overall, I don't have any complaints.

    We were looking for a great sushi place in NJ and followed the recommendations to Sushi Lounge in Hoboken. It did not disappoint! All of the sushi was inventive and really fresh. I had the pork appetizer which wasn't all that good but the rest of the meal was outstanding. It was my daughters birthday and they had a fun selection of virgin cocktails that she fell in love with. They brought her a candle in her fried ice cream and our waitress was particularly nice. Great spot, great cold sake menu, go for the fish!

    I usually come here with 5-10 people for lunch and they always do a great job serving us, seating us, and feeding us--the sushi is high quality and you can get a lunch special for $15 that includes 3 pieces of sushi, a sushi roll, and miso soup. The dinner prices are higher of course, but it's my strong belief that this place has been unfortunately ignored as a (cheap and excellent!) lunch option.

    Great atmosphere, nice dim lighting with music playing in the background. Service was wonderful and quick. The bar looked amazing for social gatherings, but there were also small tables for a more intimate dinning experience. The chicken pad thai was delicious along with a few of their specialty drinks like the watermelontini. I would defInitely enjoy dinning here again and trying their many other dishes.

    Dynamite spicy tuna roll. Nice balance between slightly spicy and still tasting the fish. Doesn't happen often. It was chef's selection, and the only thing a didn't like was the shrimp -- it tasted fine, but it is such a boring choice in my opinion. Nice place.

    Overall, a lovely Valentines Day experience. Would have liked a bit more privacy (our table was pretty much on top of the diners around us). Service was great and the food was great also. Would go back, but will remember to request a table upstairs for more privacy and space.

    Good sushi at great prices! This place had openings at the last minute on Valentine's Day (since it's my birthday and I don't realize everyone else is going out for another reason, I never remember to book ahead). We shared a few rolls and a round of drinks (the saketini is worth a try) and the price was surprisingly low, especially considering the good quality of the food. Would definitely go back!

    Expensive for what the food is - you can get better and cheaper sushi nearby. Very loud restaurant, which is observation, since some people like that and others don't. Pleasant but inattentive waitress - water glasses were not refilled.

    Pretty good food, but some of the fish was a bit bland seemed a bit dated. The Sashimi was attractive, but the pieces were just too large for one bite. So made it difficult to eat, I would suggest they give two pieces and still just charge the one price.

    In my opinion, this place has the best sushi in Hoboken. The staff is very friendly and quick but not overwhelming. It has always been a place with a great vibe and seems to be a place that is popular with the locals as well as people visiting from out of town. The atmosphere is fun and great for small groups or for a date. I recommend the sushi lounge a big thumbs up.

    For the one time ever, we ordered a bad dish at Sushi Lounge. Our traditional sushi was fantastic as always, but the fish dish we ordered was a bit on the mushy side with a serious lack of flavor. Love going here and ordering take-out a few times a month but this latest trip wasn't so hot.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/22/2008
    Not really a romantic place to dine. With a DJ spinning during dinner hours, its hard to hold a decent conversation. Martini's are fantastic esp. on Tues for 1/2 price martini night. Fusion sushi rolls are pretty inventive. But if you're going just for traditional sushi, skip this place. There are many other places in Hoboken that can offer the same or better traditional menu without all the trendiness and loud Hoboken crowd.
